Renteria unsuccessfully challenges out call

CHICAGO -- Cubs manager Rick Renteria unsuccessfully issued a challenge on Monday night after Starlin Castro was called out trying to steal second.

With the Cubs trailing the Brewers, 1-0, with two outs in the second inning, Castro broke for second base during Justin Ruggiano's at-bat. Second-base umpire Clint Fagan called Castro out following the throw from catcher Jonathan Lucroy to second baseman Scooter Gennett, but Renteria challenged the play.


After a review, the ruling on the field was confirmed, and the inning was over.
